Feature Story I - Gold Rush!

"Gold Rush" is the incredible, but ultimately tragic and mysterious story of Teddy CULLINANE's experiences in the Yukon Gold Rush.

The picture above is of a gold tiepin (c1906), gifted to my great grandmother Julia CULLINANE, by Teddy - her brother.

The pin is of a horse-shoe with a miners winch cradle and bucket, it is stamped "Dawson 14k" on the reverse.

Feature Story II - In Service

"In Service" is the transcript of a recording made in December 1976. The conversation is between Annie May Thorne (nee Stanton) (nee Heath); and her daughter-in-law (my grandmother) Ruby Cullinane Stanton.

The conversation traces Annie May's early life from early 1900's Bristol, and memories of the end of the Boer War; to her time "In Service" as a domestic servant in St. Ives (Cambs) and London, until her return to Bristol c1910.
